Hi, my name is Joy, and I live in Carsen, CA and I've been a caregiver for more than ten years.
How did you get into caregiving?
Back in the Philippines I have my grandma who was 103 years old. I was her favorite granddaughter, and since I'm so desperate of taking care of her because she was so far away, I decided to take care of elderly. So that way, I will not be guilty of not being able to take care of my grandma. From that time on, that's been my passion, and that's how I got into this job.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice for a new caregiver, they should be patient. They should be caring and loving.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
Client that I will never forget, I took care of her for five years and was working with her five days a week and I'd been close to her. I was affected. She was like my own real grandma.
